president

I am the mother of 10th and 12th graders at BHS and an 8th grader at King. I have participated in many school and district committees and understand the challenges we face daily. I became PTSA president because of the “S” in our PTA. The student voice is so important in our district. Together, I look forward to assessing the needs of our high school community and creating tangible solutions.

Suhera Nuru

 

president

I am from Ethiopia and a senior in AC. I’m the president of the Muslim Student Association and co-president of the National Society of Black Engineers. I enjoy writing comedy, running with my friends, meeting new people, and making fun of my sister. I’m going to Boston University where I plan to major in Biomedical Engineering. I aspire to open a health and education clinic in Ethiopia.

executive vP

I have 2 BHS seniors at BHS. I’ve been the PTSA’s president and treasurer and represented BHS on the LCAP Parent Advisory Committee for 3 years. In this last year of my being a BUSD parent, I hope to put my knowledge of BHS’s math and 504 issues to good use. Collaborating with the PTSA student execs this year has given me a taste of the rewards our BHS educators experience in working with teens.

executive vp

I am a junior in BIHS. Prior to coming to Berkeley High, I was in Ecole Bilingue de Berkeley from kindergarten through 8th grade. I’m trilingual as I also speak Spanish. I have been interviewing BHS staff members for our new PTSA website. I enjoy judo, spending time with friends and playing with my cat Percy.

treasurer

This is my 15th and last year in BUSD schools as my son is a BHS senior. I have volunteered in our schools in various capacities throughout including in-class activities (science, writing, math assistance) and PTA Exec positions at Rosa Parks and BHS. I've always found that PTSA involvement is a great way to stay connected to the larger community and forge deep, lasting relationships within it.

Bridgett Bernhard

 

secretary

I am the mother of an incoming ninth grader at King, which I represent on the LCAP Parent Advisory Committee. I feel it is important to help the public schools in the ways that I can to support students and hard working teachers. Serving as secretary of the PTSA has allowed me to get a sense of Berkeley High, its school activities, and the various needs of the school.

Anaya Loving

 

secretary

I am a sophomore in CAS, the sophomore class secretary, and the co-founder of a club called Power Through Voices that started this year. I’m on the women's varsity crew team. I have been a Girl Scout for 10+ years (contact me for cookies). I am very passionate about politics and the state of the world so I’m involved in programs like youth and government. I love to travel and try new foods.

Ph.D.

 

equity & inclusion VP

I have two beautiful daughters, one graduated last year and my youngest graduates this year. I am also a college educator. During my 14 years in BUSD I have enjoyed volunteering every year, K thru 12th grade,  giving back in time and talent to support student success-not just my girls but all students in their rites of passage to graduation. It takes a village of parents to help make it happen.

inclusion vp

I'm a senior in AC. My hobbies include playing soccer, dancing, and playing the ukulele. I live in a bilingual household (we speak English and Spanish). I usually travel to Nicaragua every year to visit my mom's side of the family (although due to Covid, we weren't able to go this year). I love traveling and the coolest place that I've traveled to is Spain.

culture & climate vp

I am the  mother of a BHS senior. This is my 13th year being active in our Berkeley school PTAs. It has been great fun and sometimes hard work. Throughout, I have made many friends and have felt part of communities that strive to enrich our children’s schools by creating meaningful opportunities for them to experience. Please join us!

I am a senior in AC. I’m on the BHS women's varsity crew team. I enjoy playing the flute (I miss band), spending time with my friends, and working out with them. I have a cat and a dog whom I love dearly. In helping the PTSA bring student perspectives on our socio-emotional well-being to light, I’m hoping our efforts will promote a more positive distance learning experience for students this year.

communication vp

I am a BHS parent and the current PTSA VP of Communications and its previous treasurer. When my son was at Ecole Bilingue I was actively involved in its Parent Association. The PTSA is a great organization creating and building community at BHS and helping to link all of the great and diverse people and communities connected to it.

I am a senior in CAS and a varsity rower on BHS’s women’s crew team.  I enjoy listening to all different types of music, taking photos, and goofing off with my friends while we work out. I am passionate about digital arts and video editing, and in the future I plan to pursue a career in film production. I love to travel and experience different cultures and spent a month in South Korea last year.
